Life and Faith in My Study of the New Testament

Identify 3 passages of Scripture from three different blocks of our study of the New Testament that are related to either Life or Faith. For example, you could choose Luke 4:18-21, Romans 3:21-26, and John 4:7-12 (three different blocks: Luke-Acts, Pauls letters, and Johns Writings) to help explain how you understand the theme of Life. You are free to choose either Life or Faith as your focus, and you may find it helpful to review your discussion posts and interpretation papers for relevant passages. Consider how each passage casts light on your chosen theme.
Identify a biblical passage and a particular assignment that impacted you during this course. You may go back to Discussion 1.1 and review the goals that you had for this course. Reflect on the changes that you have experienced in this course and how that specific passage and assignment participated in that change.
Compose an initial post of 250-300 words that do the following:

    Synthesizes your three selected passages from three different blocks of the New Testament (see #2). Use each of the three passages to explain your understanding of the theme of Life or Faith (not both).
    Reflects on your learning experience and any personal changes in this course (see #3). Describe the changes that you have observed in yourself and how they were affected by one particular passage and one specific assignment.

Who and What controls your space?

Answer the following question
We take for granted elements of control and rules that govern the use of the spaces we inhabit. How might
these elements and rules govern our behaviour? If these elements were not present but we knew there were
sill rules, would this make a difference in the way space may be controlled? If there are controls in place but
were not sure if anyone is regulating the rules behind these controls, would that make a difference? If you see
a control, do you have the capacity (agency) to regulate this control?
